It's dark and early here on the western coast of America, and in roughly 20 minutes Manchester United and Liverpool will battle on the English Premier League's fifth matchday.

Both teams have relatively stuttered in their respective starts to the campaign. Liverpool especially, who sit in 16th place on just five points; United are third with two wins and two draws.

Sometimes these emotional derbies turn out to be real stinkers; sometimes they're truly epic clashes. Here's a glass of orange juice toasting to the latter.

Kickoff at 5:30 AM PST, 8:30 EST, 1330 BST, or four years from now if you live in the Andromeda galaxy.

Line-ups coming shortly. Sit back, relax, or stand up and be nervous. The Reds clash in 15 minutes.
